is a motivator for one space to get out and get to the polls because you want this person to replace justice ginsburg when she retires, for example. and health care is really the only thing that resonates. if there is any possible outcome is that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. and governor romney may well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute could but it does not seem that that kind of social conservative question has a lot of salience in something like a presidential debate. so other than health care, i do not see much happening. >> i think it will not happen. and here's why. no major national political figure has attacked affirmative action publicly since 1996 or before. it isind of remarkable. the republicans who, during the 1990's for a while, we're seeing some sort of political profit attacking affirmative action given the polls don't do it anymore. and the democrats, john kerry coming nearly 1990's, joe lieberman in the early 1990's and others, said maybe this time to stop these racial preference

poll numbers? they are not much worse than that were two weeks ago. if i were axelrod or david plouffe, i would be a little worried, actually. i wonder whether the obama campaign will look back at this last few weeks as an opportunity to pull ahead. now we go into the debate with a three-point race. it is like structurally, it remains a weak incumbent running for reelection. he is somewhat vulnerable. i wonder if they could have done more. everyone keeps saying romney should make a major speech or this or that. if i were a democrat, i might have taught --, have thought he should be doing a little more to lay out a bipartisan agenda. one of them has got to be able to discredit the other. i think he has left mitt romney more running room that i would have expected. a few weeks ago i would have thought the numbers would be worse for romney. >> there is a microphone coming over to you. >> i am just curious about what you think the dynamic would be if governor romney is elected between him and paul ryan as the vice president, and then dealing with the house. and not having the filibuster pr

. veterans are disproportionately not entirely men. every poll that i have seen shows men favoring mitt romney. by another poll, a different direction. this is a group i have reported on -- nascar fans. nascar fans favor obama by about seven points, which is quite remarkable if you ever spent, as i have come a weekend at a nascar track. that is remarkable. so, there is some very mixed pictures here of those constituencies. colin served as a deputy of the defense from the middle east from 2009 to 2011. he is with the new americans security and the professor in the securities program at georgetown university. well, and my question to you is this. in light of the events in egypt and libya, how can the administration to defend its response to the arab spring? >> i think if you look back to the president's cairo speech in the summer of 2009, for what he said was the united states had an interest but the people in the region had an interest in moving towards a more just, accountable, representative government. we saw that movement. the demand for political change started in the late 2010 and

are with the working guy. i think obama signals that he would pursue a constitutional amendment. did he said is not possible. he may go door-to-door on this. some polls suggest the eu would be lower by it used to be just an last few cycles, that that was it beauregard's -- a bar partisan rally. there is a potential for one party to take this as a baton. >> at the same time the bipartisan ground has disappeared, it has become a much bigger issue among democrats. senator find gold was a patsy to the democratic leadership. in many ways, that was a miracle. what you have now in the previous congress until 2010, led a majority of democrats supporting the fair elections now act. it is deeply imbedded at the highest levels. of the have not really seen that before. if democrats were to take back the house, potentially, you have a different political scenario. republicans would have to respond to that because -- in the past, that was a good thing but on the other hand, they know that they have mastered this system and i don't really a mess of it. i think the commission is stronger and it will

sell for romney. according to "the wall street journal"/nbc poll, obama leads in nevada 49% to 47% and in new hampshire and north carolina. two of the three states both think romney a strong run the economy. that is one set of polls. now we have this other set we want to show you quickly. this is from rasmussen. they do a daily tracking poll. for a long time now, they have been showing this race as even. this gets updated daily at about 9:30 a.m. they have obama and romney both up 46% nationwide. with leanders, 48% a piece. the swing state tracking poll is tied as well at 46%. this is from rasmussen reports. scott, a republican in colorado springs. hello, scott. what do you think about the campaign media coverage so far? caller: it's a joke. they are all totally biased. the thing that really gets me is that you have these various news view" andbama on 'the letterman. he won't go on fox. he avoids the tough ques tions. it's just as bad here in colorado as anywhere else. i hope when they have the debate in denver that they ask the tough questions. people need answers. this foreign-policy
